Look Out For Volvo’s Version Of A Hotrod
Ask a car lover or aficionado why he (or she) goes to car shows. You would be given plenty of reasons why they are there. Some would say that they are simply there to marvel at the new production vehicles that auto manufacturers are boasting of. Some are looking at the cool features and technology that they could use. Some are shopping for some cool Volvo 260 parts for the vehicles that they are trying to restore. While there are also some who simply go to such shows to check out the latest (and even futuristic) concept vehicles.
During this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (or SEMA) show, you would also find a showcase of vehicles that these auto crafters are setting out for people to ogle at. One of the concept vehicles that one can find for this year is the new Volvo version of a hotrod – the Volvo-Caresto V8 roadster. Never did once it enter my mind to think of a hotrod that belongs to Volvo such that this one comes as a big surprise.
Of course, it did not come as a big surprise when the show goers were actually attracted and had their attention drawn to the hotrod that Volvo Cars was offering. We all do know that hotrods are quite famous for brands like Ford, Mazda, and Jaguar, but never for Volvo. And the very fact that the Volvo Caresto V8 roadster is a hotrod and is a Volvo vehicle at the same time brought the curious to take a look at it and gape at it.
Many who have been able to see what this Volvo hotrod was all about were able to comment that it actually does take it style from most of the classic hotrods that we all do know about. In fact, this one has already been compared to the likes of the Mitsubishi Aluma Coupe as well as the Plymouth Prowler. As per the overall look that this vehicle has got, one could say that it has got an interior that is clean and quite so simple for a hotrod. The usual clutter that a hotrod has got cannot be found here.
